Rigid plastic items and books can now be recycled in Monroe

As one of 54 towns that recycle with the Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority (CRRA), Monroe residents can now place large rigid plastic items and books in recycling bins.

The CRRA’s single-stream recycling facility will now accept:

—large toys

—beverage crates

—laundry baskets

—recycling bins

—telephone directories

—storage containers

—hard-cover books

 

How to prepare items for recycling

Any of these items that fit inside the single-stream barrel can be recycled, provided that:

—all metals such as bucket handles and wheel axles are separated from the plastic items

—all items are rinsed and clean

—covers from hard-cover books are removed and placed in the trash
